No matter the costs,
I will keep the faith.
I will stand in the midst of trials.
I will hold on to You.
I will trust You.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.”–Hebrews 11:11
Truth? Your faith is going to be tested. But that does not mean you break under it. Instead. Stand. Your faith will never be in vain. God will make sure you’ll never be put to shame. He will never leave you hanging….
I recall many a time when my faith in Christ took me to the end of me.
End of my journey.
But God never left me.
I know it sounds strange to the normal hearing.
But it is so true.
I could have never done the things that I have done without divine blessings.
I could have never done what I have without His Help.
I could never be who I am, tender heart and all, without The Cleansing and healing Words of God in the Bible.
I could have never been set free from addiction on my own.
I could have never been set free from depression on my own.
Yes, there are those who say we have great power lined within our souls that enable us to do such great feats.
But can you, on your own, save yourself from a car accident that should have ended your life?
Can you escape yourself when you have been strangled under the currents of depression?
Can you fight off the bullies and naysayers once and for all?
Can you stop your own wrongdoing?
Can you in your own power, by your own strength…do any of these things?
You can not.
And you were never meant to.
You see, faith to the outside world seems precarious, mystical and somewhat scary.
When in reality it’s not. It’s simple. Yet its results are so complex and can be beautiful.
And around you.
So stop thinking your faithless.
You have faith. But where are you placing it?
In people? Family, friends?
You disappoint yourself.
Circumstances change all the time
Jobs come…and go.
People disappoint us all the time…even if they don’t intentionally mean to.
However, having faith in God is different. Having faith in the real one—brings about results. Faith in Him is always consistently…good. No matter what the outcome, even if it is not what you expected, is glorious.
Miraculous. Not only for you. But even those around you will marvel at God’s goodness in your life.
Faith in God, the real one brings about positive, long lasting, character building results.
Results that instantly change who you are, and bring about who you were meant to be.
Faith in God helps you understand Who God is, His intimate care and love for you.
Faith is what we hope for, and evidence of things (including God. Not diminishing Him to a thing, but I pray you understand) not seen.
God is so real.
He knows you. He loves you.
I’m praying your faith fails not, and when you come back, you strengthen other believers. God bless you, love you all.
Have faith. Stand stand. Trust in Him. Remain encouraged.
Your faith is not in vain. It is not for nothing. It will not be wasted.
Keep walking with Him, standing with Him, till He comes.
